Verruca or Verrucae are warts of the feet caused by an infection called the Human Papilloma Virus, commonly found in swimming pools, changing rooms or communal areas. The virus invades the outermost layer of the skin and causes visible lesions to appear on the skin, resulting in one verruca, many verrucae or a collection across a large area called mosaic verrucae.

Usually they do not hurt or cause pain and in most cases the infection resolves itself without the need for treatment. However some verrucae can cause pain or continue to grow or spread so treatment is sought. Our podiatrists offer a range of verrucae treatments including debridement and applying topical chemicals.
